Re: Holding an AGM via Zoom?

Many Thanks for all your comments. Like Enrique I think that it is just a cop out by our Administrators. We are a small community of 18 owners from several nationalities and normally we only have a few who attend the AGMs. I would have thought that Zoom would be the perfect answer given the current ...

Holding an AGM via Zoom?

Our Community AGM has been postponed because of the Coronavirus situation. I've suggested to our Administrator that perhaps it could be held using Zoom. They have replied saying that it would not be possible as people have to attend in person and that the law would have to be changed or a royal gove...

Electricity meter readings

I've been trying to understand my electricity bill a bit better and I see that there are two readings taken into account. One is called "Punta" and the other is called "Valle". Can anyone explain what these represent?

Many Thanks

Professional Organisations in Spain

A couple of apartments in our block are suffering from water ingress when there is heavy rain. All the efforts by the local builder engaged by our Administrator have failed to solve the problem. Does anyone know of any professional organisations in Spain that would have experts who would be able to ...

Question about unpaid Community Fees

I know that if an owner has not paid their Community Fees that although they can attend meetings they cannot vote.

Is it possible for them to hold an office such as Vice President if they have not paid?

Re: Changing ISP?

Many Thanks Manchesteral We have several networks connected to our building including Movistar and Orange. We have had a similar experience with Movistar but they keep increasing the price (twice in the past 10 months!). What I am interested in is the process of changing between one and the other. S...

Changing ISP?

I am approaching the end of my 12months with Movistar and I'm thinking about changing to Orange. I have a fibre optic line with telephone although I never use the phone. I know that I can go into the Orange shop and arrange a new contract with them but does this automatically cancel the contract wit...

Re: Impact of new Data Protection rules on Community of Owners

Thanks Maureen

Our Administrator is a lawyer so hopefully he will know but so far I haven't heard anything from him (I'm not in Spain at the moment).

How long to organise a medical repatriation?

My friend had a stroke a fortnight ago. It took the Insurance company 10 days to come to a decision. We are now waiting for a medical repatriation to the UK by air ambulance. Can anyone tell me how long this should take? The Spanish hospital have said that it is okay for my friend to travel. Many Th...

Re: Community Internet via the TV

Was this system ever installed and how did it perform? I'm interested as a similar system is under consideration for our block but based on a 300Mb/s fibre optic line.

If so I would be interested in hearing your experiences and about how the service is managed, what it cost to set up and how it is paid for on an ongoing basis. I have an a...
